I'm sitting here on the couch in the middle of the day
If you asked me I could name a million things I could be / should be doing
But I don't really care
I'm not stressed
I'm not bothered
Today is a glorious day.
The sun is shining for a start. This does in turn mean things like, the washing pile is no longer over flowing.
Lulu is on a kinder excursion. This means she will be out for 7 hours, I know I shouldn't be shouting out 'high five me, my daughters not home' but it does reduce the load.
Tom has gone to a friends house for a play date........... do you see where I'm going with this?
And as I sit here and write this, Zans is in bed having a nap.
Hallelujah to that baby!
There is no TV on in the house, it is silent. I can hear the wind rustling the leaves on the tress outside.
I know I could be running around like a headless chook trying to do some of my chores, but I am little weary and I know it will all still be there tomorrow, so tomorrow is good enough for me.
Earlier this morning once the older two were gone I headed down to the gym for a workout.
Zans went into the creche for the first time.
It was only an hour
He is ever so confident
I knew he'd be fine
Yet when I came back despite his efforts to be brave, he was in fact a little sad.
Next week his big brother will be there to hold his hand, I'm sure that will make a difference.
I ran / walked on the treadmill for an hour
I have A LOT of work to do!
But the last couple of days have been good.
I am not dieting, I have eaten three meals a day.
But I have not eaten any sweets.
I've reduce the amount of Coke Zero I am drinking
Lee kindly left this message on my recent post about my battle to be healthy:
Hi, I have popped over here from Caz's. As I suggested to her, perhaps just work on one or two of these things. When they become habit, work on another two. It can feel so overwhelming if you punch all the issues together. Good luck!
And thanks to her kind words of advice I have decided to reduce the amount I drink, but not try to stop altogether. Maybe down the track.
But I am trying to be reasonable and not set myself up to fail.
Goodness knows my husband asks me, how many times have you started this campaign to get fit now?
So off I go on my merry way, enjoying each moment of today for what it is.. simple!
I am happy with the life I lead, sure we all desire a little more and work toward that, but I am happy in this moment.
I'm happy with the joy my children bring me but sometimes I am happy when I just stop for a minute and am in my own company.
I'm joining in with Nathalie over at Easy Peasy Kids for her 30 Day - Happy Place Challenge.
What's making you happy on this day?
